Video - Final Stages Of Record-Breaking 48-Hour Cricket Net

The final few seconds of a remarkable fund-raising event in which Dave Newman and Richard Wells batted for 48 hours to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

Newman and Wells faced more than 16,000 balls during the event which was held in Sleaford from 30th January to 1st February.

Joinin's Global Cricket Community Ambassador bowled the first ball and returned to bowl again when the pair passed the 26-hour mark - the current record for a cricket net.

They will now have to wait for verification before they can officially claim the new world record but the event was a huge success.
